COVID-19 Restrictions May End in 3 Weeks
In about three weeks Israel will be almost free of coronavirus restrictions if the epidemiological situation continues to improve, Health Ministry officials said Wednesday, as the country registered fewer than 100 new cases for the fourth day in a row.
“A week from Thursday, the green pass outline will not include any additional limits,” Deputy Health Minister Yoav Kish said while addressing the Knesset plenary that convened to approve the new regulations and to extend the existing ones. “In my estimation, if the disease continues to decline, in three weeks from today we will remove the restrictions completely... and that is an amazing achievement,” he added.
Some 86 new cases were identified on Tuesday, with less than 0.3% of the 34,000 tests performed returning a positive result. The figures are in line with those from previous days. The number of serious patients and active virus carriers in the country also continued to drop, standing at 132 and 1,651 respectively. At the peak of the pandemic in January, there were 1,200 serious patients and tens of thousands of active cases. (JPost / VFI News)
